Yours is an impressive set up, I expect it took you a while to perfect your systems and workflow.

Compared to a photographer like me who shoots tiny amounts at a time and doesn't always even process them the same day it sounds very slick indeed.

Thank you.

It’s the culmination of refining a lot of the workflow over a few years; processing images and then getting them online. The biggest lesson we learned years ago was never to get behind as we work every day for the main company. So if you don't process Monday...well guess what...it’s still waiting for you on Tuesday. And on Wednesday you have Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to process. So very quickly you learn to process there and then. Even though we do minimal amounts of post, you still have to get the job done.

I can understand processing images on a machine to have print ready images because although on a much much smaller scale I do that. But presumably you have to have all as web sized images and actually upload them to your web server daily also?

Have you found some automation for that step - getting the images from your pc to the web and ecommerce package all labelled up if they need that?

Everything we’ve done was written by us, both myself and my wife have a past life in IT. So everything from pulling from the card to publishing on the website has now been reduced to one operation and 4 questions that the system will prompt you for, and even those 4 questions today are defaulted answers. The 4 questions are essentially parameters, eg are we publishing 10 or 30 minute galleries on the website (zero gallery option will be added next month), multiple cards, whether a delay is required for processing (this is important if you have one card (camera or event) that needs priority over everything else, but still want to load up multiple jobs), and of course date.
